Abstract:
A 53-year-old man underwent neo-adjuvant chemo-radiotherapy and a 2 stage oesophagectomy for a junctional oesophageal tumour in 1996. In March 2012, a metachronous oesophageal tumour was identified, 7cm above the anastomotic margin, on a background of non-inflamed squamous mucosa. He is currently being managed with chemo-radiotherapy. Oesophageal cancer is associated with a historically poor survival rate, with primary concerns being local recurrence or death from disseminated disease. This case highlights the challenges which must be faced, as treatment strategies improve and consequently survival rates increase.
